Good day! I am humbly requesting the annual historical data on the damages from the natural disasters (typhoon, earthquake, and volcanic eruption) that occurred in the Philippines in 1990 to present.  I would be needing disaggregated data on provincial level, and if possible municipal level. Please express the damages in terms of casualties, affected population, damaged houses, and cost of damage (agriculture, infrastructure, private, others). It would be great if the data be in MS Excel file format. Your response would be very much appreciated. Thank you!
